VENTURING OUT – A NEW MUM
Happiness, or maybe trepidation?? Taking our new baby out for the first time. Baby settled (changed, fed, wrapped up and sleepy looking) in her car seat. “Not too far to go”, only across the bridge over to the north shore from the west coat!
Ouma and Mum are looking forward to their first coffee out together since forever, so it seems – only two weeks really….. really?? Little delight is in tow, she will be a social butterfly like her Mum and Ouma (of course!). All is well and how wonderful to see that Cafe in sight. Mum breathes a sigh of relief, there is calm all around. Nice handy park acquired right outside the cafe “Stanleys” must be good… named after Grandad!
Clambering from the car to get inside the cafe as it began to drizzle, baby still calm and sleeping, all is well. Mum and Ouma sit down feeling pleased with their efforts of having such a good baby who is allowing them this pleasure, that was once taken for granted, but now treasured.
Surprise, the pleasure only continued with the kind caring and good service shown to us by the staff. They peeked at our pretty baby, made no mention of the fact that there was not much room for the capsule which altered the path of service to tables, staff happily yielding. Ouma noticed how Mum shifted the capsule, this way a little and that way little, as the waitresses came and went. Was she feeling just a little nervous about the capsule taking up so much space, after all for the first time she had to consider where to place this little human in a public place, considering her safety within this public space. Keep in mind that two weeks after having a baby, a Mums brain is still like “mush.” No offence, it just is and “thinking” becomes a concentrated effort! “Good effort Mum!!”
STANLEYS CAFE – MILFORD
Great coffee, (Ouma is a coffee snob, so she knows!) 🙂 Deliciously fresh muffin. Relaxed, kind staff and the pretty fresh flowers placed on every table, a touch that makes one feel special!
You provided a vital wellbeing experience for Ouma, Mum and Baby Delight at a time most required. 👵🏻👩🏼👶🏻 🙏🏻
